Advances in DSS Metadata Delivery via the WWW


This paper discusses Purdue University's creation of a Web application to distribute DSS metadata. The metadata is stored on Oracle database tables; creating an update system in Microsoft Access is easy, and facilitates quick and simple changes. The Oracle Web server formats hypertext pages on the fly from the database tables as they are requested. This combination gives hundreds of DSS users access to DSS metadata through their Web browsers, with instant access to changes as they are entered.
